Cashew's Curtain Fabric

I've finally gotten the urge to start filling Cashew's room. Not a lot, but slowly start figuring out what exactly I want. I have no idea what crib we should get, no chair for nursing, no dresser or changing table, but hey, I've finally gotten the curtain fabric figured out. Chris wondered why I needed to get new curtain fabric, but I want to try to ensure the best napping possible so I want to make a roman shade with blackout fabric. So new fabric it is.

The paint color in this room will remain the same, and the paintings on the wall will stay also


I love the soft blue color of this room and I think the 3 paintings are bright, colorful and fun. So when I started looking for fabric I really wanted something to compliment the paintings. I liked some

Swavelle/Mill Creek Indoor/Outdoor Lovara Celestial Blue

Robert Allen Kiki Pinata

Richloom Indoor/Outdoor Wildwood Garden

Waverly Wonderama Blue Jay

There were a couple that were more subdued that I liked too

Waverly Pom Pom Play Spa

Waverly Button Blooms Spa

Premier Prints Cottage Twill Harmony

But ultimately, I couldn't really pull the trigger on any of them. At least not enough to show them to Chris. I just didn't like any of them with the paintings. And, then the light bulb went off. Duh! Why don't I make a print in Photoshop and get it printed on fabric? Hooray!

I made this one pattern on a pair of shoes for our friend's wonderful daughter Jane


(seriously, if our daughter is 1/2 as awesome as Jane, I will be very, very happy).

If you click the photo you can see the pattern a bit. It's very colorful, bright, happy stars. And I knew immediately that that was the pattern I wanted to make. This is what I have so far


Clearly I've got some work to do to finish it. But I think it will be positively awesome. And hopefully Chris likes it :)

Meryl you are too sweet! Cashew will be awesome and Jane is excited to be a good example ;) love the fabric idea and Jane loves those shoes. I think we might have to commission another pair in a larger size. We just went to the Old Fashioned and it was awesome, as usual. We talked of you and Cashew and my mom says Congrats! Anyways, I have lots of opinions on cribs, chairs etc as you know so feel free to ask! And see you and that belly soon!!
